Worst Films of 1990

While good movies came out, so did the bad ones. Now no moviemaker knows how a movie will turn out, they have no intention to make it horrible. Several things can happen that might determine to outcome of a film, whether it is luck or sometimes unfortunate things happen that makes a film seem bad. But, no film is intentionally bad. Example: A Thousand Words had great potential but it was bad because of something going wrong during production, or poor execution by the writers or directors. I respect all filmmakers, because they put their life into movies and try to make a film that will stand the test of time. These films were panned by critics, had bad box office performance, either won or was nominated for a Razzie, and have a low rating from Rotten Tomatoes.com. Between 0-30% no more. Enjoy!
